On January 1 Governor Pickens received from Mr. Ben jamin Mordecai, a citizen of Charleston, a check for 910,004, for the cause of the State and of the South. Ml LIT ART MOVEMENTS NEAR CHARLESTON. fKrom the Charleston Mercury, Jan. 1.] The military movements are progressing rapidly all around us. The brave sons of Carolina, cheered by the ?aoouragement of her equally courageous daughters, are ?arnestly and silently doing all that men can do towards patting our State in a position to defend herself against the world. For the present we retrain from giving the particulars of the various works that are progressing. Wo will only say, for the benefit of anxious friends, that the gallant volunteers stationed at the various posts around us arc, one and all, devoting themselves to Oil. the exigencies of a noble cause, and that they are and will doubtless continue in high spirits and as comfortable ?' as circumstances permit." THE SOUTHERN CONFEDERACY. [From the Charleston Mercury, Jan. 8.] We publish below the resolutions passed by the South Carolina Convention, recommending to her sister States ef the South the assemblage of a Convention to form a constitution for a Southern Confederacy. There were two projects submitted to the Convention, Kioking to this end. the one reported by the Committee on the Southern Slates proposed a provisional government, with the adop tion of the constitution of the United States; the other was submitted by Mr. Khett, and proposed the assem blage of a Convention of the Southern State* to form a permanent government. The Convention of South Caro lina seems, :n pome sort, to have combinod both of thesa schemes. By the resolutions adopted, it recommends and provides for a Convention of the seceding States, and determines that it shall form a consti tution for a permanent government and confederacy; and, at the samo time, it authorizes the establishment of a provisional government by this Convention, until tlio terms of the permanent government ef a Southern con federacy may be agreed on. In view of tlie threatening aspect of our "Northern brethren,'' it was supposed that the speedy organisation of some sort of government by the seceding States might be necessary to repel aggres sions. Hence the authority to establish a provisional government. Of course the whole matter will be for the determination of the Convention of the seceding States when assembled. The seceding States are fully compe tent to all the ordinary requirements of government., life and property are safo under their administration. A few weeks, more or less, is of no consequence in form ing the terms of their confederation. But if there Is Imminent danger of aggressions from the North?if war exists?it may be necessary that an immediate provi sional government should be organized. By the time the Convention assembles, the attitude of the two sec tions of the Union towards each other will bo clear eu>ugli, and the Convention will be able to pursue that course which oircumotances will then require. The pro bability is that the Northern people and statesmen will see the desperate folly of attempting the coercion of the Southern states; and that tho Convention can proceed without haste, calmly and thoroughly, to lay the fouada tkrn of a Southern confederacy, which will last for apes tocome. THE RESOLUTIONS. Resolved, first, That this Convention do appoint a Com ?r\Ws loner to procted to each of the slaveholding States that mav assemble in Convention, for fhe purpose of lay our Ordinance of Secession before tho same, and re spectfully inviting their co-operation in the formation with us of a Southern confederacy. Secoud. That our Commissioners aforesaid be further authorued to submit, on ourjiart.lhe federal constitu tion as the basis of a provisional government for sueh States asfshall have withdrawn their connection with tho government of the Unit<?d States of Amerioa; provided That the said provisional government, and the tenures of all officers ana appointments arising under it, shall oease and determine in two years from tho list day of July next, or when a permanent government shall have boen organized. Third. That (he said Commissioners be airtbori/. d to in\ ite the seceding States to meet in convention, at such time and place an may be agreed upon, for the purpose of forming and putting in motion such provisional govern ment, and so that the said provisional government sliall be organized and go into effect at the earliest period previous to the 4th of March, 1861; and that the same Convention or seceding Slates shall provide forthwith to consider and propose a constitution and plan for a perma neat government for such States, which proposed plan shall be rei'crred back to the several Slate Convent 'ons for their adoption ur rejection. Fourth. That eight deputies sliall be clected by ballot by this Convention, who shall bo authorized to meet in t'oarention such deputies as may bo appointed by tho other slaveholding States who may secede from tho federal Union, for itie purposo of carrying into effect the forego ng resolutions: and that It be recommended to the said States that each State be entltlod to one vote in the said Convention upon all questions which maybe voted upon therein: and that each State send as many deputies as are equal in number to tho number of Senators and represent at ives to which It was entitled in the OoagVMsaf tho United States.

General Scott La? control or the United State* govevnta' nt. War is his trade. and war in now his counsel. The sworil is his arbiter, and to the a word he now looks.

And will he not do At And can he not entirely dismantle her ;n i'ori\ e^Ul hours'.' Having MHM his work, what will hinder the snid man of-war from a#ain enter r.g our harbor and boaring her reinforcements to Fort Sumter? Nothing, surely, but tbe strength of our redoubts and iheir ability to sink her. Are the) in a condition to do it beyond a doubt? We confee? to have no accurate military information on the point.

Holmes, of the Carolina Light Infantry. The ball had taken '-fleet in the left side under the KboukUsr, traversing both lungs, and inflicting* wound from the eflbcta of which he survive 1 only twenty minutes. Robert Little Holmes was the sun of William H. atd M. P. Holmes. He was born in this city cm the 10th of February, 1800, and butt tUua fallen the first victim in tbe noble cause of South Carolina Indepen dence. Ha is deeply mourned by hia parents, brothers and sisters. as well us by a large circlo of relatives and friendts, His high sense of the duties of life had in no or dinary degree endeared him to theso who knew him best. His remains will rent in tbe cemetery of Maguolt*. The funeral services will be at the Circular church ui lOo'clock this day (Wednesday.) AID TO FLORIDA. We understand that It is very likely that a proposition will be introduced into llie Slate legislature ottering aid of troops and money to the Slate of Honda. Florida does not possess very nmple resources, nor is she laden with "the spoils Of the federal government '' Her population is very sparse?not amounting to 160,000. Of course this population would not be able to arm and fortify the State, however patriotic her cit'iens might he. It is but right, therefore, that the otber Southern States should tender some aid to "gallant little Fioi ida,' thus prevent iug her secei<eicu ordinance from becoming too deeply dyed with blood. WHO COMMANDS FORT MOVLTR1K V Fort Moultrie at present is under command of Miyor Ripley, ex-Unitod State* olhcer. Lest tho public should confound him with Colonel James W. Ripley, who is now In Japan with the Japanese Commissioner;!, we haste to state that the officer in command at Fort Moultrie is a native of Ohio, wbo entered the army in 1839. He was appointed a First Lieutenant in 1847. Ho was an Aide de-camp to Major General Pillow in Mexico in 1847 and 1848, and was made Brevet Captain "for gallant and me ritorious conduct in the battle of Cerro Gordo, fought on tho 18th of April, 1847." In March, 1849, ho was further promoted to be a Brevet M^Jor "for gallant and merito rious conduct in the battle of Ohapultepec." He wrote and published in the samo year a two volume work, entl tied "The War with Mexico." On the 2d of March, 1863, Mtyor Ripley resigned his position in the army. GBOBUIA. THE SAVANNAH FORTIFICATIONS. FORT rt'I.AHKI. [From the Savannah Republican. Jan 5.1 We rceeived no comniuni< it ion from Fort l'ulaski yes terday, though we learned from a volunteer whoreturnod to the city on brief leave, that all was going on well, and that our volunteers were in good spirits. The work of repairing the imperfect gun carriages is vigorously pro Sressing, timber ami mechanics for that purpose having een sent down by the Samson on her flrat trip, and in a very short time the entire battery of uaseinated tbirty two pounders will be mounted and in posit:on. A few days must determine whether we are to have use for them, in which event his Excellency Governor Brown, whose prompt, cool anfl tirm action is justly comuieuded by all, will be prepared to fond any amount of reinforce ments necessary to hold the fortress. Yesterday morn ing another detachment of volunteers, composed of 8a vunnah Volunteer Guards and Oglethorpe Light Infantry, went down on the Samson. The tug will leave the city for the fort this merning at ten o'clock. We were una ble to learn, yeoterday, whether the cutter Dobbin had been gotten off or not. From the position in which we saw her on Thursday, we should judge that she could only be floated at high tide, even then requiring aid to get her clear of the flat upon which she was grounded. The Savannah yews of the 7th instant gives the follow ing interesting particulars with regard to Fort Pulaski:? As against assault from the water, it is defended by an ample number of thirty-two pounders, much better mount ed and in a much higher state of efflcieoey, than any one had supposed. Not simply the casemates, but the quarters at present occupied by the officers and privates, are bomb proof? tbe arched ceilings, thirtoen feet in thickness, and covered with a stiff bank sod. Tbe open area within tbe fort is not paved; tbe earth is covered with a yielding sod, formed by grass and mud thrown upon what was originally a sandbank. If a bed had been artistically pre pared for tbe purpose of receiving, capturing and utterly demoralising a shell, it could not have been better do vised. A shell falling upou it must be buried in the sand beneath from two to eight feet, and by the sdft above will be stripped of tie power even of throwing sand into the eyes, if, indeed, the fuse should not be extinguished and the shell should explode. Those wbo were shelled upon from San Juan d'l'lloa during the investment of Vera Cruz, will remember that the second morning after the landing, the attention of tbe enemy was specially direct ed to a wind hill occupied by General guitman's brig ade, which was thus exposed to their eyes doubtless to draw their tire. The shells, to dodge which in their descent became after a while rather a pleasurable excitement, buried themselves in the sand; their fuses were generally extinguished, and the cu?uultic.-< resulting from their explosion, wheu they did explode, were but tew. A very little work will place the interior of Fort Pulaski in such condition as to remove the men within it beyond the reach of even such casual ties. The Governor, whose entire action in this matter is. we repeat, beyond all praise, his placed at tbe disposal of Colonel Lawton, hi addition to the usual armor of oa .h bOldier, oue breechloading carbine, throwing, in the hands of an expert marksman, sixteen rifle boils a minute, a Colt's revolver, and one sabre. The ditch around the fort Is b< iug rapidly cleaned out, under the orders of Colonel I aw ton?rlco lield negroes having been placed at this work. LETTER FROM A SOLDIER. TO THE SUITOR OF TOE HAVAXKAH RKPtnUOA.N. ? You have, doubtless, hoard of our successful occupation of this fortress, anil tho circumstance* connecte I there with. Since the first detachments of llfty men each from the "Guard" and "Light Infantry," and twenty-live men from the " Artillery,-' a reinforcement of llfty man each from the two first named corps have arrived, nu king a total of two hundred and twenty live mon now under arms. They are all in line spirits, and, considering that many of them have only the rations dealt out by the State, exhibit a degree of patience under their privations which does credit to their soldier-like fortitude. Wc are under strict military discipline, and the Adjutant read an order y terday afternoon from the Cokmol in command (Colonel A. R. Lawton), that any sentinel caught asleep on liis po-t should be shot.' This made some of the men draw a long face, but all render a cheerful obedience to every command, and vie with each other in the prumpt and tie. urate dis charge of their duties At daylight the rewille is beaten and tho rolls are called At sunrise u guu is lired. At half-past eight o'clock the guard is changed, before whicn the-<ilticer of the day examines the quarters, and sees that they are clean. During the day the wholo force is engaged in drilling or puttuig the ammunition in order, moving cannon balls and powder. making car tridges, bags, Kc. At sunset another gun is fired, and a certain number of men from the iufautry corps drill every day in the manual of the artfllery, as this service is the chief means of defence. There is a number of me chanics at work on the gun carriages, putting them in good working order. and in a few da> s the fort will Wo in thorough and complete rei*ir. At sunset another gun Is fired, and at nine o'clock at night the "tattoo" is beaten, and the roll called again. You may .judge from this round of duties, there is but lit tle ttmo left for anvthing in the shape of fun, though wo ?lo have It, notwithstanding. There seems to be a perfect understanding between the oGiceis and men, and tbe familiarities which are permit ted whan on "bandbox" duty arc entirely ignored. A salute is always respectfully given to a conimisskmed officer whenever be ptisscs, with a pleasure that shows it is from respectns much as from duty. It is a rt marUable circumstance that hut few men are in the ho. pital. Three men were confined to their rooms ywterday, but I believe are all out to-day. There is tbe best feeling imaginable between all tbe corps here, and a brotherly sympathy which is gratify ing. Our corps (i. e. C. A.) is supplied with everything, our cuisine Is periv<t,end we will Dot have to tight on empty stomachs. There are many opinions amongst the privates as to the propriety of the'step we b ive token in obtaining this fort, but whatever these differences ure, they are all sunk Iti the propriety of ol>eylog onr Gov ernor s order, and In maintaining the honor and dignity of the Empire State of tbe South.

The hotel wa crowded to the utmost capacity This company sre sub Ject to the orders of the admtni-tratkia, ami expect to *ee active service, for which they are preparing MESSAGE OP THE GOVERNOR OF INDIANA. ftmissim m, Ind., Jan. 11,1801 I'uTtrnor lists mo ??F? menage rtiatcs mic y to th aUte or affaire. He m;?, the law tor the protection cf tbe baijvt box agu.nsi fraud is defective. Ho recom mends the passage of a law inflicting hnavv penalties for illegal voting. Ho recommends uie establishment of a sub-treasury system, to prevent Iuch from (ho depre ciated condition of the securitied upon winch our bank circulation ia based. He says the strength of the federal government rents in the affection of tbo people of the several States, anil is one of affection, not of force. An alienation of the a flections of the North and South exists, attributable to the agitation of the slavery question at the North, which agitation baa been materially intensified by the xeulous rflbrts of a class of political teachers belonging to the ministry. This has produced ultraism at tho South, resulting in the division of tbo country into sectional parties. Against these ultraii-ms of the North and South, it is the duty of tho conservative element of tho whole country to interpose. This must be done, or disunion is inevitable. Ihe North has as much interest In the South, in the welfare and prosperity of the South, as our Southern brethren. The constitution demands that fugitive# slaves be returned. Common honesty requires that th-y should have ful' and equal rights in ull tbo territories. The future condition of tho territories, so far as the ectension of slavery is concerned, will be ultimately determ ined, uatural laws, climate, soil, production?, Ax The election of Mr. Lincolu has caused the South to believe there is no longer any safety for them or their property in the lTnion nor the slaveholdiug States. There can only be permaucnt peace between the sections when the free States are ready to stop tho dis cussion of the abstract question of morals connected with this subject and look upon it only as a political questiou. What in most needed is the restoration of kindly feeling. Then we may hope an honest and faithful discharge of all the constitutional obligations toward each other will result in healing the present breach. He points with pride to tbe fact that Indiana as a State hitherto has fully kept the bond of union with hor sister States. Her record is untainted by any act of bad faith. The llouso to-day passed a resolution to display the American dug from the Capitol dome and fire a salute of thirty-three guns in honor of the Union while tho Hag was beliiL' hoisted.

A call for a National Convention of Worklngmen at Phi ladelphia on the 22d of February was endorsed. nroiTUT mom winncnHi. WASHW.roN, Jan. 11,HWl. Tbe correspondence between Major Anderson and Gov. Pickens is commented upon in Congressional and diplo matic circles to-day, and with some severity upon the courso pursued by Major Anderson. But thoso whore comments are most severe know the least about the mat ter. Thrsj who are likely to know mor.t about tbo facts contend that Major Anderson has acted wisely. His first letter to Gov. Pickens does not exhibit the slightest know ledge, on bis part, that the veseel flred into was the Star of tbe West, conveying lilm reinforcements and stores; and it is probable that be did not know the fact until it appeared in Gov. Pickens' answer. Thisdevelope mrnt probably caused Major Anderson to delay his purposes until be could communicate with the War De partment at Washington. In order to do this be inuwt so conduct himself towards the authorities of South Caro lina as to obtain the right of way across that State At the expeuse of a little courtesy he accomplished that ob ject, and in a fow hours Major Anderson's messenger will arrive here by extraordinary express, when we sliall have a clearer insight into tho matter. It is natural t > suppose that Major Ander.ou wan surprised to hoar that the vessel fired Into was bearing reinforcements, because only a few days since he a sured his brother, who viaitc t him at Fort Sumter, that ho did not want reinforce mcnts. 1113 Orwttin bar tto mmoo !?? raluraH hi this city. Ail these facts coniirm tho theory advanced in this correspondence, that the .-#ar of tho Wc-t was not intended for Charleston. Tho order glvoti to tbe commander of that vessel to go to Charleston whs only intended to exist until within an hour of her deptt ture from New York, wbeu the real place of destiualkm waa to be named by telegraph A dc]iat;h was sent to that effect, ordering tbe Star of tho West to Fort Mon roe. It was too late; and then the Brooklyn was tele graphed to leave Norfolk immediately, and intercept th > Star of the West and order the captain to land his troops at Fort Monroe, in Virginia. There is reason to believe that the despatch to Norfolk was intercepted, as tho Brooklyn did not sail until a mcssago was sent to her commander iu writing, when, as the coontry knows, it was too late to reach the Star of tbe West and prevent her going to Charleston. Thla being apparent, tbe government at once assumed the responsibility, and now tako the position that they must sustain (be honor of our Rag, so grossly insulted by tho revolutionists at Charleston. Report ssys that the Fulton has been ordered to gj to the res< ue of the Star of tbe West, and conduct l?c to Fort Sumter at all hazards. but this ia not likely, ui view of the approach of a messenger from Major An ier.-ou. Tbe reported preparation of the authorities of Charles, ton to ioceive the Brooklyn i* of little coneequence if true, as it ia well known that she draws too much wat?r to cresa the bar in Charleston lurbor. A gentleman just from Cltarlest?n says he <tne< n -t believe that the Star of the Weat was intended to g there, believing tieueral Scott '.o be loo well port d alioi.t the preparation going on theie to irceive hoi to s< nd, under such circum-laie e.s, an una, mod wo ,,ion hell Ilk' the Star of the West upon-ticb an errand.
